PS Plus update for April 2014 hopes

Have you been having a good time with Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition on PS4? The game was free as part of February’s PS Plus update, but now excitement is brewing on what Sony could possibly offer gamers with the highly anticipated PS Plus April 2014 update.

Sony has gained massive respect for their PS Plus platform and it’s a service that the majority of gamers have no problems paying for at all. Eyebrows were naturally raised when it was revealed that PS4 online multiplayer would be a paid-for service like Xbox Live, but those doubts have been alleviated completely after gamers realized the sheer amount of extra content that PS Plus offers.

With the Dead Nation offer coming to a close, Sony will give gamers another free game for the April PS Plus update. There are no clues yet on what game it could be, but we have a feeling it may not be a major game this time around.

After all, Sony cannot give away their best titles for free each month, so there has to be some kind of balance. Outlast was already a surprise in our opinion, so we do think Sony are due a break of some sort. Having said that, gamers will still expect something good after Dead Nation.

We are obviously not going to see Infamous: Second Son free for a long time via PS Plus, so what other potential candidates could it be? What about Injustice Gods Amung Us: Ultimate Edition, or Rayman Legends? Both games would fit the bill as a ‘major’ title and both games would be deemed as a good decision in terms of the free game for PS Plus.

As we await Sony’s decision, let us know your thoughts on the upcoming PS Plus update for April. Simply tell us 1) what you think the game will be and 2) What you personally would like the game to be.

You guys are nuts to think it would be knack metal gear solid bf4 kzsf that’s just ridiculous that will not happen for a very long time like one person said it will probably be a old PC game or a f2p game so honestly do not get your hopes up for any ps4 game title that is still being sold in stores that’s just a money lose idea but w.e it is I’m happy with it cause regardless I only paid 10 bucks for a game and a month of online multiplayer service

It’s going to be some PC PORT or F2P game…….Sony can’t afford yet to put true disc-based titles up as freebies given that the PS4 Library has not grown much since launch.

I think it’s going to be Knack. They had an exclusive bundle for just about every launch in every major market as well as Japan’s recent launch. They had guaranteed sales from this alone. I think it would be a part of the contract for that exclusivity deal that Knack would be one of the first AAA games released as PS+.

I say give us Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zero because its basically a 2 hour tutorial for Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain. The best games came free anyways without PS Plus. I don’t know give us something good for a change i am depressed looking at what is free on PS Plus for PS3 and i sold mine ha. Bad move.

I have a feeling it will be Strike Suit Zero, or Octodad.

My guess is going to be Fez. It had it’s chance to make money so it really is a last minute cash in by Fez (I’m sure Sony had to pay for the rights to release on PS+). Not a game I particularly am looking forward to but will play since I have not yet.

I think we might see Need For Speed. We haven’t had a racing game and they know everyone is kicking off over Driveclub so this might quench the thirst for a while. Also it’s just been on a major sale on PSN. I’m not that fussed on MK but at least it would be a AAA game.

Wouldn’t mind Rayman either

I really hope it’s Mercenary Kings and not Secret Ponchos or Octodad. I also have a bad feeling that they are going to be putting knack on there at some point. That’s brilliant for people that have not played it, because it’s a good game,but bad for me because I have got the Platinum for it.

Could be asking for a little too much,but I wouldn’t mind Tomb Raider. 🙂

i would deffinately like a game like Knack or Battlefield 4, I would also like to see Styder. So far the games they have released do not interest me as much. However, Playstation definately treats its customer way better than XB Live does.

For me, the PS4 Plus games have been all about variety. Resogun, Contrast, Don’t Starve, Outlast and Dead Nation are all very different in terms of the gameplay. I hope Sony continues with this trend. I’ve heard Secret Ponchos and Mercenary Kings touted, SP looks very similar to Dead Nation, so I hope they don’t go with that. MK looks like it could be a lot of fun, and different – so that’s the game I think we’ll see. Sony did say that Driveclub (not the full game) would be launched on PS Plus, that would be the game I… Read more »
